Dwight Watt - Watt Thoughts #194 9/21/2009
#194 - Rain in NW Georgia (Watt Thoughts)
I made it back to LaFayette safely tonight but it took longer than normally due to the rain and flooding. My apartment is fine. On the 30 miles on GA Hwy 136 from the interstate to my house it rained all the way. Normally takes me about 35 minutes to 40 minutes. There were a number of places where dirt had washed over the road. About 5 miles from my apartment I had to stop as the road was under water, it was up to the window air conditioner units in the houses there. A fire truck was sitting in the road (if you know LaFayette it was by the skating rink). A truck came thru and told us it was passable but about 6 inches deep. My car made it thru safely. Then at the intersection with the bypass it was deep under water on the side but I made it thru on the shallower side. It is raining again now.
I had done the devotion at church tonight after tutoring a lady on Java this afternoon and did not leave until about 6:45 and with a stop to eat supper should have been here about 12:15 but it was almost 1AM.
This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
